    The Special Offer of multiple different pastas has been THE highlight of our stay in Italy! Service was excellent and House red wine also of very good quality Worth hunting down off the main streets of Rome!

    This restaurant was a great find! Our waiter, Andrea, was amazing and so welcoming as if we were family. His recommendations on our wine choice, appetizers and main course were superb. A cute little restaurant off the beaten path. Authentic and so good! Highly recommended if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle.

    So worth it. They were extremely kind and made great recommendations. Not over priced and no one standing outside trying to get you to come in. Amazing!

    The lobster in the linguine and lobster was very fishy tasting and not very appetizing. The waiter forgot to bring us our wine and we had to ask again. Not a lot of people there which made the atmosphere average.

    Food was great and the service also. They spoke English well and had a menu in English also which helped us chose a fabulous meal.

    the food was very good. the real problem was with the service. we were ignored from the moment we got to our table and basically had to beg for anything. they got our order wrong and I get that mistakes can happen but the staff just ignored us for half an hour after our first course was taken. even getting the bill took forever

    Come for the staff not for the food. The staff were wonderful, the food ...not so much. We had 4 of us for dinner. One ordered the 'special" beef rib, it was tough. The other three chose the 4 pasta. All of the pasta was undercooked. The chef was at a disadvantage as one of our family is lactose intolerant. But that does not excuse the underdone pasta.A disappointment to have the worst meal the last night of out 4 week holiday in Italy.

    Group of 7: Meals were exceptional from the grouped pasta dishes to individual starters and entrees. Waiter(s) were courteous and helpful in communicating the menu and specials for the evening. Price(s) were surprisingly economical considering the amount of food and expert preparation.... a true value in Rome and an easy, short walk for our group from the Mercure Toma Centro Colloseo to the restaurant.

    Nice place and the starter was lovely as was the dessert. The main was a little less enjoyable sadlyz The service was very good though and certainly was not the worst meal we have had. Our expectations were probably a little high given the reviews.

    We were welcomed quickly. Food was good but the service was lacking.

    The service and atmosphere were fine. We chose the 5 pasta plate meal option, where the chef decided to cook 5 pasta "surprise" dishes. We ended up with 1 gnocchi, 1 seafood pasta, 1 broccoli pasta, a carbonara and a creamy penne dish. Unfortunately, we are not fans of gnocchi or seafood. The dishes were a bit too salty for our taste. The 1L carafe of house wine was good value at 9 euros. Not a disaster meal, but nothing to write home about either.

    the pasta tasting was great. there was a bad thunderstorm so none of the taxis were coming to pick us up and they stayed around with us until the rain died down

    All'inizio ho pensato al classico ristorante per turisti, considerando la vicinanza al Colosseo.... Sono stato stupito del contrario, ottima accoglienza, piatti cucinati bene, buoni i dolci. sicuramente ci torno.

Pietanze accompagnate da una buona carta dei vini e da gustosi dolci fatti in casa. Il tutto servito con cortesia e in un ambiente piacevole.

SI RESPIRA ARIA DI STORIA - Isidoro lo si incontra a pochi passi dal Colosseo, all’interno di un ex convento del 1600, con mattoncini a vista e soffitti “cassettonati” si respira una piacevole aria di storia ed antichità.

SPECIALITA' ROMANE - Tra le specialità della cucina romana sono da gustare: i bombolotti funghi e tartufo, tagliolini cacio e pepe, deliziosi i risotti in tre versioni con: mele, porcini e pinoli tostati, oppure all’ortica o anche ai frutti di mare. Piacciono molto anche i dolci.
